Lots of Cakewalk hooha in the news at present, and nothing really to do with the actual products with Gibson's announcement of an intent to acquire Cakewalk - see our original story.

Before all this happened we had a visit from Cakewalk to give us a first look at Sonar X3, a full revision from X2 though perhaps more in concept than features. Firstly, they've done away with  the limited Sonar entry level version (Essential), removing all track and aux limitations so you get a fully featured audio/midi DAW.

They've also enhanced the workflow and interface with various tools - the comping tool, and object colours.

The X3 Studio and X3 Producer now both come with Melodyne as standard, integrated into the audio editor, plus a variety of other bundled third party tools and effects.

For the full lowdown on what's available in which package, visit the Cakewalk site.

Available right now.
